A prisoner who absconded from HMP Hatfield last night is now in Police custody.

Kevin Robinson, 29, fled from the prison yesterday afternoon (July 9).

Following an appeal for information and extensive police searches, he handed himself in to Doncaster officers a few hours later.

Robinson has been serving an indeterminate sentence for wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm at HMP Hatfield since 2007.

He was the seventh inmate to abscond from the open prison in six weeks.

Police have thanked the public for their assistance.
